The following guide covers everything you need to know about Blood Shards of Domination in Patch 9.1.

1.

Blood Shards of Domination

Patch 9.1 introduces 3 Blood Shards of Domination to the game. They are unique-equipped, so you cannot equip the same shard twice.

  • Shard of Bek Icon Shard of Bek — Your damage is increased by 1.5% when you have 50% or more health than your target.
  • Shard of Jas Icon Shard of Jas — Incoming healing you receive is increased by 0.7%. Your maximum health is increased by 400.
  • Shard of Rev Icon Shard of Rev — Your Leech is increased by 30.

We know Shards drop from bosses in the Sanctum of Domination, but Blizzard has not yet put out any information on how exactly that is supposed to work, whether they will be personal loot like Conduits in Castle Nathria, or whether they are actual physical items like relics were in Legion.

Blood Shards of Domination 3-Set Bonus

You must socket 3 Blood Shards into your Domination gear to activate Blood Link Icon Blood Link, a powerful 3-piece set bonus.

  • Blood Link Icon Blood Link — While inside The Maw or Torghast, damaging an enemy establishes a Blood Link. Blood Link pulses every 3 seconds, dealing Shadow damage and healing you for 100% of damage dealt. If your Blood Link would overheal you, it instead heals a nearby ally. Limit 1.
